Kesher   -  Temple Beth Israel’s Extended Community

Kesher in Hebrew means connection—knots—linkage.  For Temple Beth Israel, it means a way to maintain a community relationship for those former members, friends, relatives, and supporters who live outside Eugene and can manage only occasional returns to a congregation they still regard as home.

Those who wish to maintain a close personal relationship at a long geographical distance are welcomed as members of TBI’s Kesher circle. 

Your contribution will bring you the TBI newsletter, membership directory, access to the Kesher social network group, and continuing opportunities to keep in touch with the people and activities that make this community so vital and unique.
